I love weekends!

My weekend started on Thursday Evening at the Craft Den we had chance to have a play with some huge stamps....Those lovely gold swirls on the page above are stamps! We embossed them then decorated the design with Lynne's favourite, Pearl Pens! I recently found these photos in my Grandma's photo album. I've always had the picture in a frame at home but never realised who had taken the originals, so I borrowed them and scanned the whole set. I love them, I look so young LOL!! They were taken in 1994..... on my 21st birthday. Two months before my motorbike accident, which totally changed my life, that's another story which I may post later this year as I have scrapped that too!
A while back, we twisted Lynne's arm at the Craft Den to stock a few of the New Halloween Bo Bunny range. I couldnt resist scrapping " My little Pumpkin". I also notice Bo Bunny are having a Layout Challenge and it's a 2 page layout which I love to do so here are my finished pages. I hope you like them.

After the miserable weather on Saturday, I was praying for good weather on Sunday as my brother Gavin was running the Worksop Marathon and we wanted to go and support him. The Worksop Marathon is called the "scenic one" because it runs through Clumber park. It certainly was, there was leaves everywhere and the colours were amazing. Here is Gavin at the start of the race all ready to go.....

Here he is afterwards, relaxing with Isabel and the rest of the family. He ran it in just over 1hour 30 mins!
